I do not like Manolo Blahnik shoes. I think they are ugly. THERE I SAID IT. Fuck you Sex And The City. I don't think they are sexy or cute or interesting or beautiful. they are all to teensy weensy and lame looking. I hate them.
I like Louboutin shoes! They are soooo sexy. They have red soles! They look like something a hollywood starlet would get bought by their studio to attend something at Mann chinese theatre.
So I would have a good few pairs of them. In this magical world in which I have $500,000 to spend on clothes, I would also have either worked out and become a size nothing and learned to walk in these sorts of shoes, or had major liposuction in order to fit demurely into these dresses and avoid the pages of all the rag magazines with my 'fashion disasters' and whatnot. Got to have those ribs a-showin.
Anyway, I digress.
First, these might not look THAT special, but I love them. I love this sort of grey with red (battleships in the loft! My dad used to paint WW2 figures, and this sort of grey was always on them, and the only bright colour ever used on anything was red. Hmm.)
Anyway, the grey is sort of the antithesis of the sexiness of the heel and the red sole of deliciousness which I like. I feel like I would wear these to something serious, like meeting the president or the queen or something. $600
Then these are sort of the skankier version- a huge platform that makes them insanely hard to wear (I imagine). The slingback makes them seem less brutal than if they had a solid heel back thing I think. Yeah, these are like, the shoes that I would wear all the time cause you know... black goes with everything! $820
These are extremely hollywood- I would paint my toenails the brightest red and wear these with a purple gown. $625
These are awesome cause I think they look at the same time evil and lizard queenesque, and also cute and pretty and pink and girly. I can imagine a baddy type of character wearing them. With huge gold nails and too much eye makeup. The red sole clashes but I think it works. They also come in a nice green but these are my favourite. (no idea on price. I will hazard a guess at $700)
A side note to this.... Shoes are one of the few items I would actually feel moderately comfortable paying quite alot for (not $1000s, but maybe $100s, if I had them) because I can't make my own shoes, and from my limited experience, top quality shoes actually are made really well and are more comfortable as a rule. With fancy dresses etc, I know I could if I wanted to, make my own, or find something similar. With shoes... there's just a certain specialness that you don't have with clothes. And they come in a box, and with a special dust bag, and are ever so beautiful to look at. and they make you feel super special when you put them on.
